I’m pretty new to Memrise. As of now I’ve only been on the free version and apparently joined after all the “updates”. I can say one thing, I’m happy with what I see because I have nothing to compare my experience to. I have other learning apps which are far inferior to Memrise. I do fully understand letting the developers know about troubles and concerns but the posts I have seen are not encouraging to my experience at all. So sad.
Well done finding the Forum and reading around.
